Once named the sunniest of all of the Greek islands, Rhodes holidays offer more than just phenomenal weather with a coastline filled with beaches and many towns brimming with major historical attractions.
The great weather seems to never let up in Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese Islands. The island gives visitors the opportunity to relax on the beaches, adventure across the waters and even go wild in the great party venues.
Rhodes was once home to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world but now still has many notable areas of ruins that are fascinating to tour around. The Greek food here is of a quality to rival any other Greek destination and there are also many places to buy locally made goods.
Holidays to Rhodes can be enjoyed by all members of the family, by couples and by 18-30s depending on which resort you choose to stay at. Rhodes Town is a romantic and educational resort, Faliraki is great for night time parties and Kalithea provides plenty for all ages.
Nowhere else in Rhodes can hold a candle to the increasingly popular nightlife scene found in Faliraki. Add to this an exciting and vibrant beach scene and holidays to this resort will provide fun lasting memories.
There are 5km of sands to choose from in Faliraki with plenty of water sports and activities to enjoy. You'll find a great selection of nearby restaurants too.
By night all tourists seem to head towards Bar Street and Club Street where an amazing selection of nightspots provides awesome entertainment until the early hours of the morning.
This beach resort features everything you need to enjoy a great summer holiday while being ideally located in between Rhodes Town and Faliraki. The town is famous for its natural bathing spas so a getaway to Kalithea could reinvigorate you.
There are a couple of beaches to choose from here and there are good opportunities for scuba and snorkelling to spot amazing sea creatures.
The nightlife in town is generally quiet but for one large nightclub which keeps things exciting. There are a couple of shops to enjoy but nearby Rhodes Town offers a great selection of retail opportunities.
Kolymbia is a fantastic beach resort with a quiet atmosphere which is perfect for ultimate holiday relaxation. There is a kilometre long beach that is the ideal spot to spend your days with some rock pools for kids to go paddling in.
Kolymbia is the closest resort to the terrific Seven Springs area which is a big draw for tourists. Natural waters run through tree covered areas and there is a long underground tunnel to pass through too. Other attractions include boat trips, hiking or a nearby golf course.
Eucalyptus Road by the beach is a great place to shop and dine.
Lindos is a popular tourism destination that remains authentically Greek thanks to the locals who live and work here. There is an old town vibe through the cobbled streets of the resort and there is also the large looming structure of the Lindos Acropolis standing over the town.
The main beach is a great looking space of smooth sands while St Paul's Bay is a great spot to scuba dive and snorkel between the rocky waters.
The nightlife here can contrast the quiet ambience of the days as there is a good choice of lively bars and clubs to try out.
Pefkos is named after the pine trees that surround parts of the resort. Sitting on the south east coast of Rhodes this resort is a calm area to hang out by the coast.
Pefkos Beach is lined with green pine trees behind and a gloriously blue sea in front making it a beautiful and scenic place to spend a day. Plakia Beach is a less crowded space just outside of town.
From the jetty on Boat Trip Road you can board a glass-bottomed vessel to take you around the coast and to nearby Lindos.
The capital of Rhodes offers more than any other resort on the island. Rhodes Town has the most restaurants, most shopping facilities and the most historic attractions to tour.
The citadel of Rhodes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and attracts millions of tourists every year. Just outside of the town there are ancient ruins of a theatre, stadium and a temple. Many people choose to tour the large gothic palace which has been transformed into a museum too.
As well as the history there is a central beach to have fun on while the evenings provide a great selection of laidback and lively nightspots.
There is no arguing with Rhodes' claim that it is the sunniest of the Greek islands as the weather is hot enough for a holiday from March through until November with hardly any rain to interrupt you.
Temperatures reach a daytime average of 32C in July and August while the nights are likely to settle at 20C for the majority of the months. This fantastic weather pattern means you can stay in your shorts, shirt and sandals through the night as you enjoy a sumptuous cocktail or glass of wine under the stars.
A family friendly waterpark that has wet n wild attractions for all ages. The pirate ship has mini slides and water cannons for young ones to cause havoc and a couple of extreme ones to test the mettle of the big kids.
Rhodes Town is filled with iconic historic attractions but this gothic palace is the most popular place to visit. The castle-like structure is open to all to look around and has been transformed into a museum telling centuries worth of stories about Rhodes.
These streets in Faliraki are aptly named. Start your evenings along Bar Street with a good selection of pubs, lounges and cocktail bars before deciding whether or not to stay out longer. Club Street will stay up with you in an area that is filled with exciting bars and nightclubs.
Just a couple of kilometres inland from Kolymbia, this natural spectacle is hidden amongst a warm forested area. The natural springs rush through a long stream and there are some manmade surroundings that follow the water like the half a kilometre long underground tunnel.
St Paul's is a great part of Lindos's coastline that can be a sunbathing spot as well as a beautiful underwater adventure. The rocky bay creates a number of pools and coves which hide sea creatures such as squids and octopuses.
You can view the acropolis of Lindos from everywhere in the town and you must make the arduous journey to the top at some point during your stay. If you can't make the walk, you can take a bus or a donkey ride to the top. Once there you'll discover ruins that have stood for centuries.
